    Hello!

    I remember a while ago when there was a list of features in 8.1 it said it would support more filetypes (.avi .mp4 etc etc.), I'm on 8.1, but I was thinking, how do I get the videos on to the phone in the first place? With a mac, they have to be in itunes and then you sync, so even though 8.1 may support more filetypes, I'm still restricted by the filetypes itunes accepts?

    If you have videos in iTunes that aren't protected, they should be fine. Only protected stuff, like iTunes Movies, can't be synced to a WP.

    Your two apps to watch videos are the main Video app and MoliPlayer, which is basically VLC.

    I don't mean protection, I mean supported filetypes. Like for example, itunes won't let you import an .mkv and I'm trying to get an mkv on my phone. So 8.1 might allow mkv files now but itunes doesn't so therefore I can't sync it to my windows phone. I don't know if that makes sense haha

    Also, I converted my video file, imported it into itunes, sync'd it to my windows phone, opened up the videos app and can't see it anywhere, looks like its just a video buying store!

    Swipe left (I mean put your hand at the left hand side of the screen and drag it towards the right. I'm not sure about what 'swipe left' means) after opening the video app, there will be a see all option at the bottom of the screen. Videos present on your sd card and phone would be present there.

    Swipe left is swiping from right to left. Swipe right is from left to right.

    Yes, on the video app. Open the app and swipe through the different screens.

    Click on the 'see all'. That's where all my videos are.

    when i go on to the video app it loads xbox music, the first page i see is collection, no swiping needed (which is different to yours), it then takes ages to load and then says your collection is empty, find something to watch in the movie or tv stores. I sync'd a video to my windows phone and it doesn't seem to be listed... :(

    I don't know if this will work, but have you tried to manually copy the video files from the PC in explorer? I have done it with music in the past.

    EDIT - Sorry didn't catch the fact that you have a MAC.

    P.D. what you mean in the OP is new video codecs. And no, current Xbox Video app do not support new codecs.
